12:30 PM -- The WiMax team at Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU) should prepare themselves for a deluge of not-so-serious queries following today's announcement that the Norwegian Oil Industry Association (OLF) is to test wireless links between oil rigs and ships using the vendor's gear. (See OLF Tests Alcatel WiMax.)

For instance...

  • Will Alcalu's equipment sink or swim?

  • Is it the right platform for the job?

  • Will this mark a new wave of deployments for Pat Russo's crew?

  • If the equipment fails, will the OLF hold Alcatel-Lucent execs over a barrel?

More suggestions please…
